Self-published author Hugh Howey exploded onto the scene this year with Wool, Omnibus. Set in a post-apocalypse with elements of dystopia, humans now reside in underground buildings called silos. The world outside is a forbidden topic, and any who mentions it is sent to "clean." What happened to cause mankind to fall so far? Begin the journey of discovery by following the sheriff of the silo, Holston, and witnessing the ultimate decision he is forced to make. Despite its strange name, Wool transcends the science-fiction genre, as we learn just what it means to be human.
